Quotes, witticisms, and maxims uttered by Winston Churchill, as well as some falsely attributed to him, have been complied in several books over the years. The Smart Words and Wicked Wit of Winston Churchill from Skyhorse Publishing is a recent addition to the genre. A pocket sized effort, the book provides 250 quotes in 14 sections (Sage Advice; Churchill on Churchill; A Cutting Tongue) with the text supported by several illustrations. It is edited by Max Morris who previously prepared The Smart Words and Wicked Wit of Jane Austen as well as the forthcoming The Smart Words and Wicked Wit of William Shakespeare. While researchers seeking a comprehensive resource on the British prime minister’s quotes should consult Churchill By Himself: The Definitive Collections of Quotations edited by Richard Langworth, The Smart Words and Wicked Wit of Winston Churchill is pleasantly presented and suitable for the interests of general readers.
